I remember when I first realized I don't have to be afraid of a police car following me. It was hilarious. I was getting all paranoid as usual, then all of a sudden it dawned on me that I have no reason for it. I also remember the feeling that I can actually have people over and I didn't have to worry about what they would think when they saw all the beer cans, because there were any any more. Awesome feelings each and every one. LOL :D :D :D :D :D :D

...When ya wake up in the mornin'.
Ya won't have to wonder where you're vehilce is???
You will remember who it is you're sleeping beside :oops: 8)
Ya won't fall off the stage, you will remember words to the songs, and
will remember what town you are playin' this gig in :oops:
You will remember where you are goin' as ya drive down the highway
sober---or...maybe not, but--least you'll be sober :wink:

Have a good one kids...and remember:
If the goin' gets tough, take my advice,
Pull down your pants, and slide on the ice.
See ya in the funny papers.
